Ripe banana???

This last Wednesday I went to my OB and she told me that I was a ripe banana. The baby had dropped way low and I was dilated 1/2 cm. (I know, I know, it's not that much but it's a start.)
My doctor said that she'd be surprised if I lasted until my due date because I look so "ripe". That's when she compared me to a banana. She said that if you think about a banana it goes from green to yellow to brown. So green = early pregnancy, yellow= late pregnancy, brown = ripe = anytime I can go into labor, water breaks, the whole shebang. We'll see.

Oh my, very exciting!! A ripe banana - how funny.
So are you two all ready? Do you have your bag packed? Is your mom on 24 hour standby? We will be anxiously waiting by the cell phone. Let us know when things start moving.

Love, Mom & Dad
